'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mancini's Message Of Continuity For Front Four

Cue more groans across Wapping. Roberto Mancini has publicly placed his faith in all four of his title winning strikers...

It's getting to be a nightmare for your average Phil Space tasked with knocking out Manchester City exit rumours for demanding Sports Ed hacks this summer. Spoilsport Mancio has done it again, this time refuting claims that he is after another striker this season.

In order of seniority, Carlos TÚvez, Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli rattled in 69 goals between them in all competitions last season and have a combined wealth of Premier League savvy and medal winning experience in Manchester behind them.

If it ain't broke, why fix it? Mancio to Gazzetta dello Sport:

'I have four very strong strikers.I just need them to compete in the Champions League...we are okay in attack.'

Balotelli and Dzeko Training Skills


In other news, the fact that Manchester City walked away from Eden Hazard's ludicrous salary and agent fee demands is slowly filtering through. As is the knowledge that he missed the Belgian team coach at the hotel for training in Liege. A not uncommon occurrence in the world of Hazard.



UPCOMING FIXTURES:
all times East Manchester

Fri 27 July Arsenal, Birds Nest Stadium, Beijing, Friendly
Su 12 August, Chelsea, Villa Park, Community Shield
Sa 18 August, To Be Confirmed, PL

Thought every one of our mercenaries was either not good enough, too unhinged or wanted to move? Pity, as it will make for a very dull transfer window without all the speculation. Well, for the "journalists" it will.

i really really really am excited for the mario sergio partnership we saw from october till january. they were magnificent together during that period. what a footballing brain mario has when he wants to use it. go back to an old game and just watch the attacking positions and runs he makes. he always seems to know where he should be or where he should go in order to score. can play the ground attack and get up in the air too which makes him preferable to dzeko and tevez (if mario's head is in it of course)

"Wat a idiot".

Now there is clearly a man with no concept of irony. Keep 'em coming blueballs, my sides are hurting from the laughter. P.S. If you're after another man to smell and kiss your ass I'd suggest you quit trolling Vital and check this place out - it sounds more your sort of thing: http://www.gaytimes.co.uk/
